The mainstream media has become a target of frustration for those wishing it would provide more coverage of the dramatic trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell. But one congressman is upset President Barack Obama is apparently not paying much attention to it since the president hasnt commented on the gruesome live-birth abortion deaths.
Rep. Scott Perry, a Republican from Pennsylvania, where Gosnell abortion clinic was located, blasted President Obama and the press for ignoring the Gosnell trial.
Mr. President, your silence is deafening, Perry said on the House floor today. Are you so blind, are you so intractable, are you so extreme that you yourself cant even call this out for what it is, something that is reprehensible? Pro-life or pro-choice, this is reprehensible.
It is worthy as a father, as I am, of two little girls. It is worthy of your attention, it is worthy of your leadership, it is worthy of your direction.
According to a report in The Hill, Perry said prosecutors suspect Gosnell may have been involved in dozens of illegal abortions, and said the U.S. Attorney General should be looking into the Gosnell case as well.
This does fall into the purview of the United States Attorney General because these patients often time travel across state lines, Perry said.
The Hill indicates he also went after the media.
The media doesnt want to talk about it, Perry said. Not NBC, CBS, ABC, CNBC, not Fox, and not the leaders of our nation, not the President.
He perforated bowels, cervixes and uteruses, and he left women sterile, he said.
It gives me great pain and sorrow to have this entered and read into the record, Perry concluded. But since the media outlets refuse to cover this because its uncomfortable, because it might not meet with their agenda, and because many of the leaders of this country refuse to discuss it, I think its important that we have it read into the record, so that this history and their stories dont remain untold.
“Rep. Scott Perry, a Republican from Pennsylvania, where Gosnell abortion clinic was located, blasted President Obama and the press for ignoring the Gosnell trial. “
You have the Penn Ping no?
Obutthead might notice if they were using guns to kill the babies after botched abortions.
Yea he’d be all for it!
Obama supported killing babies who survived saline abortions at “Christ” Hospital in Chicago. He’s perfectly fine with what Gosnell has been up to. After all... can’t have those upstanding “mothers” punished with a baby now, can we?
Obama voted in favor of letting babies die after birth in the State Senate didn’t he?
Not once but twice.
